Conclusion I made sure all fluids were topped off and adjusted the clutch cable and test rode the motorcycle to make sure it went into all six gears. To activate Reverse, I came to a complete stop with the clutch pulled in and still in First gear. I held the reverse toggle switch up while I pushed down on the gearshift lever. As I let out on the clutch and gave it a little throttle, the motorcycle backed up. I realized that I was going to have to be careful doing this as I did not want to back up too quickly. When I was ready to go forward again, all I did was stop and shift up into First gear. Just to make sure that I was in First and still not in Reverse, I tried pushing down on the lever slightly and it would not go past the stock stop, showing me the safety lever was doing its job of not letting me accidently shift into Reverse.

Then install the mainshaft.18. …onto the new BAKER countershaft. Make sure everything is lined up correctly. Reassem 19. To line up the shafts with the main drive gear and countershaft bearing, install the door into the transmission case with the gasket in place using the 5/16 socket head cap screws. With the transmission in gear, and making sure the countershaft bearing retainer plate is removed, tighten the supplied nut to 45-55 lb-ft using red thread locker. Repeat the procedure on the mainshaft. Install the countershaft retaining plate and torque the �-20x5/8 button head screws to 110 lb-in using red thread locker.19. To line up the shafts with the main drive gear and countershaft bearing, install the 20. Remove the gearset and put it back on the bench to install the shift system, including the detent lever and shifting drum. Using the special socket provided, torque the drum nut to 25 lb-ft using red thread locker followed by the shifting forks and rods.20. Remove the gearset and put it back on the bench to install the shift system, includin 21. You are now ready to install the gearset with the gasket in place for the final time. Use the BAKER bolt tightening sequence to torque the bolts to 220 lb-in using blue thread locker. With the bearing door in place, put the shifter pawl on the shifter drum to check that the transmission goes into all the gears. Raise the rear wheel and spin the rear wheel as you go through the shift pattern. You will have the normal six-speed shift pattern plus one more down from First. It will appear as neutral at this time because the reverse gears are not installed yet. If everything is working correctly you can reinstall the top cover.21. You are now ready to install the gearset with the gasket in place for the final time. 22.

After screwing the clutch cable into the new cover using a new O-ring, make sure the clutch actuator rod, thrust washer on the idler gear, and gasket are in place before installing the cover. Make sure the solenoid plunger rod (arrow) is pulled out of the way while doing this. Install the �-20 fasteners supplied with the kit and using blue thread locker tighten to 110 lb-in.23.
